From the Archives: Tale From the Trail

At 80 years old, the Terrapin Trail Club is the oldest student-run organization on campus—but it’s certainly not slowing down. Back in its debut season (above), students paused during a hike in Devil’s Den Nature Preserve in Virginia. Today, the club offers a year-round calendar of outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, backpacking, camping, skiing, caving, canoeing, kayaking, skydiving and rock climbing. More than 250 students are active members, says President Harlie Petrangelo ’18. “If you want to lead a trip that you don’t see being offered, you can start a trip of your own. That’s what makes the club so unique—it’s shaped by its members.”
